Since the DMD2.64 installer is gaining the ability to install VisualD
automatically, it would seem the VisualD installer needs an enhancement to not
request the DMD install path when invoked by the DMD installer.
The DMD installer should surely be able to communicate this to the VD
installer.  There is no reason to prompt the user for the installation path a
second time. They may even become confused, wondering if this is somehow a
distinct path, since they just gave that information a moment ago.

This probably requires cooperation with the DMD installer dev.

I have made a new installer available here:
https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/visuald/releases

It picks up the setting from the D installer if you have not yet made a
selection in the Visual D installer before. It still shows the respective page
for verification, though.

Just noticed that the new sc.ini is too elaborate for Visual D to evaluate
correctly.
It also seems I have broken x64 builds if compile and link are in separate
steps (I started implementing calling the MS linker directly, but was
distracted and forgot to remove the changes when building the installer).
